Just for Today
“Don’t Despair. But if you do, work on in despair”
I don’t know who the author of the above quote is. I saw it on a blackboard many years ago. The words struck a chord that resonated with me way back then – and quite a few times since. I’m a person who works through bad times.
While today was far from being a bad time in my life, it was one in which despair of getting something done within a restricted time frame could have grabbed my attitude. Thankfully, I remembered that old quote that has seen me through many a difficult day.
Just two days before my grandson’s wedding, I took on the task of creating 21 table centerpieces. Yesterday I scrounged the craft departments at Big Lots and Wal-Mart and then went and had dinner and margaritas with my grand-daughter.
I then went to bed and designed centerpieces while I slept.
With the need to get those centerpieces all done today hanging over my head, I sacrificed my morning writing time when I woke up and went to work.
The good new is that I finished all 21 centerpieces. The bad news is what I’ve written here is all the blog you’re going to get today.
Have a good evening everybody.
